Did you know the WA Police Force have a CCTV register for people with CCTV systems to participate in?
CCTV footage has become an important investigative and evidentiary tool for the WA Police Force. To date the WA Police Force have found locating cameras to be a time-consuming and resource-intensive task.
In order to speed up this process the WA Police Force are wanting to work together with the community to establish an accurate and comprehensive register that identifies the location of as many CCTV systems as possible across WA. So, if you operate a CCTV system, you can help the WA Police Force build a safer environment and solve crimes by registering your details.
Who Can Register?
Registration is voluntary and is mainly for viewing ‘public facing’ cameras.
What Information Is Required?
If you have a CCTV system at your residence that you would like to register, your full name is required (as it appears on your driver’s licence), your current residential address, your contact details and some details regarding your CCTV system and cameras.
If you have a CCTV system at your business premises that you would like to register, the full trading name of the organisation is required, the physical address of the business, the contact details for the owner and operator of the CCTV system and some details regarding the CCTV system and cameras.
When you log in to the WA State CCTV Register, details of your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address and the time and date of your access will be automatically logged by the WA Police Force system.
